A FLYIN P.O.S.....................


...........................................THE 'ARTIST'..................

LOOK UP IN THE SKY…
IT’S A BIRD,, IT’S A PLANE…
NOOOO,, IT’S A GIANT DOG TURD…


Mon Aug 11, 3:26 PM ET
GENEVA (AFP) - A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled "Complex S(expletive..)", is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.
The inflatable turd broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said. The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.
Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if the piece would be put back on display.

How much did the museum pay for that flyin' turd anyway?...
Geez,, this guy is a genius,, he could probably sell ice to the Eskimos....
He doesn't look too happy,, I wonder if he had to make a fiberglass

cast from some of his own dogs turds,, or did he have an assistant
do it...
Just think,, now this guys name will always be…la artist de la
big flyin dodo

Instead of creating masterpieces that will inspire generations of

future artists,, he creates inflatable house size piles of dog sh*t…
what next?.. a whole series dedicated to turds?...
I can see it now,, walk into the Guggenheim Museum,, and walk

past rooms and rooms of giant inflatable turds,, all representing
different types of turds…there will be turtle turds,, pigeon turds,,
mouse turds,, alligator turds,, and my favorite,, museum curator turds…

None of my 'stories' even come close to this true one,, I may as well
give up now,, cuz I'll never be able to top it...............

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. You are a comedic genius. There. My fingers aren't even crossed. But, you are so right. I don't think you will ever top this one. So, my friend, keep your eyes to the skies, and watch out for yourself.

Happy trails.

To Swubird:
The story about the flyin turd is true,, I just grabbed it from Yahoo…
I would like to have been there when this guy proposed his
idea to the museum owners…
“Yes,, I’d like to create a housesize inflatable pile of dog sh*t,, and I’ll only charge you $500,000”…
Must have been a lot of good drugs floating around the
boardroom table that day………

Now, if the American taxpayers are going to be forced to pay money into the National Endowment of the Arts to fund moronic "artists" who produce shit, I really would want that money to fund THIS kind of shit. I think that's awesome.
